Rother Valley Optics have put together a beginners package which is suitable for any telescope. The kit comes with a planisphere, Skywatcher ND Moon Filter and an ADM Red Torch. All these items are perfect to go alongside any telescope to get you up and running.
This premium Moon filter will reduce the unwanted glare from the Moon, maintaining your viewing comfort without loss of resolution. With 25% light transmission this version will suit any astronomical telescope equipped with a 1.25" focuser.
These contrast-enhancing anodized aluminium, optical glass filters are designed to block out the wavelengths of light emitted by mercury-vapour light and other common causes of light pollution, whilst providing higher transmission at critical hydrogen-alpha and hydrogen-beta lines than competing filters.
The red LED flashlight has also become the preferred method of illumination for the amateur astronomer.Red light is ideal for reading star charts and adjusting telescopes while protecting your night vision.
